Donohue’s Terry Boyer, PE is a presenter at the 78th Annual Regional Conferences of the Illinois Association of Water Pollution Control Operators (IAWPCO) on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. His presentation is titled "Computer Modeling for Nutrient Removal" and covers the use of computer modeling with BioWin or GPS-X activated sludge models to address current permit changes requiring nutrient removal. Several real-world case studies will be presented demonstrating how modeling is used to predict performance of nutrient removal systems. The importance of wastewater characterization will be discussed as well as the use of modeling to predict effluent performance during construction of nutrient removal facilities.
The Annual Regional Conferences are held across the state of Illinois and allow wastewater professionals the opportunity to network and learn from real world experiences. The conferences highlight a range of wastewater challenges facing operational staff as well as current and potential regulatory changes. In addition, vendors will be exhibiting and highlighting equipment and technology related to these upcoming wastewater treatment challenges.
